Hackathon attendance lessons

[ #32560 ]
  1. If you pack a laptop, pack some headphones as well. You might want to listen to something while the people in the vicinity are working (or sleeping).

  2. Pack some painkillers!

  3. Normalise your sleep schedule at least a day or two in advance…

  4. ifconfig $wiface up
    iwlist $wiface scan | egrep 'ESSID|Encryption key'
    iwconfig $wiface essid $essid
    dhcpcd $wiface

  • Pack your own powerstrip, and label everything that's yours. Everyone's Mac power supplies look alike.


    • Hmm, I did neither of the first two points; but I didn’t have more than one plug anyway and was lucky with the second because people happened to be good with keeping their stuff apart. I imagine it might be a bigger problem at a bigger hackathon.

      The third point was evident even without it causing any problems, though. :-)
